Thanks. We will be in Halifax in August and as there are 6 of us (my husband, me, two teenage children and my parents) we are renting a minivan to self drive. We thought we would straight drive to Lunnenburg and then drive back slowly stopping on the way back. We expect to be off the ship relatively early as we will be waking early due to time changes. It will be my dad's birthday that day.

Lunenburg is lovely, make certain you drive around the harbor toward the golf course, so that you see view, across the harbor, with all the painted buildings. The Knot Pub does a good haddock and chips lunch.
Do drive through Mahone Bay on your way back, and stop to get a photo of the iconic three churches.
As you head back toward Halifax there are many exits north from the shore road toward the 103, the main highway.
The temptation is to stop at Peggy's Cove to see the lighthouse, but in my opinion, for what it's worth, it seems very commercial and crowded.
We had a summer home near Lunenburg for many years, if you have any questions.
